Abstract

A frequency-domain technique to extract the normal mode from the measurement data for highly coupled structures is developed. The relation between the complex frequency response functions and the normal frequency response functions is derived. An algorithm is developed to calculate the normal modes from the complex frequency response functions. In this algorithm, only the magnitude and phase data at the undamped natural frequencies are utilized to extract the normal mode shapes. In addition, the developed technique is independent of the damping types. It is only dependent on the model of analysis. Two experimental examples are employed to illustrate the applicability of the technique. The effects due to different measurement locations are addressed. The results indicate that this technique can successfully extract the normal modes from the noisy frequency response functions of a highly coupled incomplete system.
